Daniel Craig is hailed as one of the finest actors of his generation on stage, screen, and television. Last year Craig returned for his fifth and final turn as ‘Bond’ in No Time To Die (2021). The film was nominated for Outstanding British Film of the Year at the 2022 BAFTA Film Awards and won the Academy Award® for Original Song.

In 2019 Craig was seen in Rian Johnson’s hugely successful film, Knives Out. A whodunit contemporary murder mystery, Daniel starred as ‘Benoit Blanc’ alongside Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Chris Evans, and Toni Colette. Craig’s standout performance earned him a Golden Globe Award nomination. He will reprise his role for the sequel – Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery – alongside a stellar cast including Kathryn Hahn, Dave Bautista, Edward Norton, Kate Hudson, and Jessica Henwick.
